How to test Windows Mobile 6.5 applications? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can we use MS MTM for testing Windows Mobile 6.5 applications?

    Note that there are emulator images available from the Windows Mobile 6 SDK.

    If possible, what is the best way to incorporate this in MS MTM?

  • MTM does not support testing Windows Mobile 6.5 Applications. You can see the set of supported platforms here

  • Quick Note: You can use Microsoft Test Manager to store manual test cases that test Windows Mobile 6.5 applications and Test Runner to run those manual test cases, mark test steps as pass/ fail, file bugs etc. You will not get Coded UI Test, Action recording, or rich bugs with action logs, intellitrace etc.

     If the emulator runs in a separate window on the MTM machine, you can create video recording while testing of your entire desktop (which would include the emulator) and you can get event logs from your MTM machine (which would include errors/ warnings thrown by the emulator process as well).

  • Hi Simon,

    You can use M-eux Test from Jamo Solutions to automate your test cases on Windows Mobile 6.5 applications. It integrates with Visual Studio and Microsoft Test Manager so you can re-use your existing tools.

    Hope it helps,

    Frederik.
